Youth on McGregor’s Side
It is unclear if the 40-year-old Mayweather has lost any of his speed or conditioning during his near two year hiatus from boxing. But what is certain is that McGregor will enter the ring with some 12 years on his side against a boxer who is well past his prime.
Mayweather will need all of hi swift footwork if he is going to jink his way past the barrage of blows McGregor will surely be throwing. The 28-year-old is not one to die wondering and knows his best chance of an upset victory would be to knock Mayweather out rather than go the 12 rounds.
